Thread: Cannot remove DISA valve

Cannot remove DISA valve
I removed the two T40 torx bolts and even the nut beneath it (which I wasn't sure I was supposed to do).
I have put a ton of force on this thing and it won't come out.
I pull on it laterally away from the engine block. I get a little movement. I have tried prying it with a screw driver to get a little play and I have saturated it with WD40. I have tried actuating the butterfly by using my finger and pulling the level to no avail. Does anyone have any advice?

Re: Cannot remove DISA valve
There are THREE torx bolts holding the DISA valve in place. One is kind of hidden.
Don't feel bad, I did the same thing for about 10 minutes, until I thought, "Hmmmm.... maybe there is a third torx bolt".
Of course, none of the diagrams show it.
There are two bolts - one on each side of the opening, and then a third on the body of the valve itself. See link below for more pictures.
If you do not yet have a Bentley manual, I highly recommend it.
P.S. - my photo album mistakenly said two bolts as well. I just yanked the hood on my car - there are three.

For some reason the link was removed from my post above.
Here is a photo
Here is the album
The new Roadly is very oddly formatted. What is 9 divided by three? What is all that about? No more picture links or hyperlinks, either. And they appear to be removed from my older posts...
